You can now get a personal firewood permit online

We have launched our new online service for Forest Resources Permits to cut firewood for personal use. The permit is free and authorizes you to cut up to 25 m3 (11 cords) of firewood for uses such as heating your home. Failure to have a permit or carry it with you when cutting or transporting wood can result in fines, confiscation of the wood and other charges.
